This is a two hour interactive session designed as an introduction to the principles and practices of high quality assessment.  You are required to complete a short pre-course activity which will help you prepare for the session.

At the end of this course, attendants will:

  • understand the basic principles of assessment;
  • understand what assessment is, levels of assessment and the types of assessment methods; and
  • be equipped with the skills to effectively assess Agored Cymru units and qualifications.

Please note: You must attend this course before attending the Introduction to Internal Quality Assurance course.

To ensure that you can participate fully in the session, you should use a desktop or laptop computer, rather than a phone or tablet. Please ensure that you have a device that has a microphone and/or the ability to use a keyboard.  While a camera is ideal it is not essential although we would like to see those participating in our session!


This course is suitable for any centre staff who are new to Assessment.

Newly recognised centres are entitled to 4 free training places, to be used in the first 12 months after becoming a recognised centre.

Additional places can be booked subject to availability at a cost of £50 per person.
